Hundreds chant "one law for all" in Elizabeth

Around 300 people turned up at the Elizabeth Magistrates Court today to protest for a second time against the draconian laws of the Australian Building & Construction Commission (ABCC) and the charges brought against Adelaide construction worker Ark Tribe.

As readers of this blog will know, Ark Tribe has been charged with failing to attend a "compulsory" ABCC interrogation. Taking advantage of laws usually reserved for the likes of suspected terrorists, the bosses whip snake – the ABCC - has moved on from attacking union officials and is going after rank and file workers like Mr Tribe.

However, the ABCC have taken their attacks one step to far and are meeting a growing resistance, not only from building and construction unions but from the whole union movement and its supporters. They have clearly underestimated the strength of working Australians who, with every day that passes, are standing tall with the rigger Ark Tribe.

Keep an eye on this site for photos, video and interviews from today's rally.

One Law for All, Justice for All!
